Is Mars moving closer or farther away from the sun? If it is moving closer, is it possible that life could spontaneously develop?

Mars is neither moving closer or moving further from the Sun. It's not possible right now because of Mars' orbital velocity or speed it orbits around the Sun.


Life could develop on Mars if it grew closer (which is definitely not possible) because it would thaw out the frozen water and there could be oceans of it.
